Chicago Bulls vs. Utah Jazz Monday Game Preview, TV Schedule, and Betting Lines

Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

Amazingly the Chicago Bulls are favored in this one (-3) against the Utah Jazz, despite the home team playing against the Derrick Rose-less Chi-town squad.

It was sobering news to find out Rose would have to go under the knife on the other knee, which could just have him out for the entire season. That is not a definite, but just something to set your expectations to because that is the typical recovery for a full surgery on the meniscus. Hopefully, he will be healthy sooner though. Really feel for him just because of all the time and effort that he put into his recovery

That the Bulls are still favored shows how much Vegas dislikes the Jazz just for those of you keeping unofficial track out there. Probably agree with Vegas on this one, and expect to see the Bulls win but at the same time with Rose out it might be a close game.

Honestly, if it were my dime I’d probably stay away from this one and bet against the Knicks like all the cool kids are doing.

This one tips off at 9:05 PM EST, and here is the TV info for it.
